Humbled Females: new forum reply to Onetime Actions


New reply from teejayel

<p>Comments @ willow:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Nutrition:</strong> <strong>"Use smaller plates to reduce caloric intake."</strong> <em>Take the food budget and use it to buy expensive food (and a wide variety; avoiding pasta and the like) The diet balance will improve and there'll be less of it. </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Sleep:</strong> <strong>"Remove your television from your bedroom."</strong> <em>Er, switch it off? Or only watch something to which you are prepared to devote your full attention (no moving wallpaper), recording to view it at an acceptable time of the day, for a limited period. There is plenty of dross to ignore. Limiting viewing time should increase quality. </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Productivity:</strong> <strong>"Delete games and social media apps from your phone."</strong> <em>Use the phone for calls, texts, emails, work, only. </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Focus:</strong> <strong>"Permanently set your phone in Do Not Disturb mode." </strong><em>Either you have a phone for its utility, or you don't. A halfway house is not productive. (Case in point, if I want a woman available that includes on her phone). There may be designated times when you should not be contactable and leave it behind, for example, returning to the time on holiday to the pleasure when you could count how many days' travel you were from home contact. </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Happiness:</strong> <strong>"Get a dog."</strong> <em>A dog may be as much of a distraction as a TV. Four-wheel drive cars are more eco-friendly. I tend to look kindly on working dogs, but not dogs as company. If I want collared company the answer is obvious. There are clear companionship benefits to a dog, but I prefer alternative solutions. Friends, for example. However, they give some folk huge benefit and I would certainly not proscribe them. </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Health:</strong> <strong>"Buy better shoes to avoid back pain."</strong> <em>This is clearly aimed at women. Yes, do that: shoe fetishism, male or female, is undesirable. Whether simple or stylish, uncomfortable or debilitating is ridiculous. NB: (And I always prefer my women completely naked rather than wearing just high heels – although I am guilty of having my girl sunbathe naked except for suspenders and stockings in the Swedish woods simply because it was in complete contrast to the natural background and made her "more" naked). </em></li>
<li> </li>
<li><strong>Finance:</strong> <strong>"Call your service providers (cable, electric, etc.) and ask for a lower rate."</strong> <em>Yes. Especially if you find they are taking advantage of customer loyalty. This can especially be true of legally or contractually required insurance, where still creditable firms charge as much as two thirds less than long-term suppliers relying on their customers' inertia to over-charge them. But don't make it a fetish. </em></li>

Onetime Actions

<p>I am subscribed to the site JamesClear.com. The site contains information about positive and effective habit forming, among other worthwhile life lessons. </p>
<p>In the email I received today he referred to Onetime Actions that are low in effort and long in benefit. Since I am on a huge habit forming/changing kick, I found value in his advice and wanted to share it. Some of these actions are so simple but I can see how they can make a huge difference: </p>
<p> </p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Nutrition:</strong> Use smaller plates to reduce caloric intake.</li>
<li><strong>Sleep:</strong> Remove your television from your bedroom.</li>
<li><strong>Productivity:</strong> Delete games and social media apps from your phone.</li>
<li><strong>Focus:</strong> Permanently set your phone in Do Not Disturb mode.</li>
<li><strong>Happiness:</strong> Get a dog.</li>
<li><strong>Health:</strong> Buy better shoes to avoid back pain.</li>
<li><strong>Finance:</strong> Call your service providers (cable, electric, etc.) and ask for a lower rate.</li>
</ul>
<p>While it would be a super hard one for me to do, I'm dancing around the Sleep suggestion of removing my television from my bedroom. </p>
<p>Does anyone else have any Onetime Actions that produce a lengthy benefit to your life?</p>
